Why we dream

“Why do we dream?” asked the blue butterfly girl, looking around the circle of animals she had invited to her tea party by the garden gate.

“You dream so we can always be together,” said Bear, without hesitation. “You dream so you will always have a friend. ”

“You dream so you can see,” said Hawk. His golden eyes flashed.

“You dream so you can learn to be brave like me,” said Lion.

“Nonsense,” said Mr. Fox. “You dream so you can tell stories about me.”

“Grandfather,” the girl looked into the tea water. “Why do we dream?”

Grandfather Teller’s voice bubbled like a pot about to boil. “You dream because humans are the animals that tell stories about all the others.”

I first posted this at the Robert Moss Blog. All the animals tell me it needs to be here too.
